Hi Justin,
   I did my own version from Thomas' instructions. Unfortunately it
wouldn't even boot on my 4 year old Asus AMD64 machine. It's the first
kernel failure I've had in years.

   I've not investigated why and have not reported anything back. I'm
currently using 2.6.29-rt_somthing without problems.
